Whipcord Western Red Cedar - Thuja plicata 'Whipcord'

The unusual foliage on this low, mop-head like plant consists of long, thick, glossy tendrils that suggest independence Day fireworks. Unlike the species, which is a giant forest tree, the many branches seem to explode upward and send sparks cascading in all directions.

Green in summer, the foliage changes to bronze in winter, matching the richly colored wood. Every garden can accommodate the small, dyanamic conifer that demonstrates some deer resistance.

Drooping foliage is glossy green in the summer with a bronze cast in winter. Tolerates shade.
